're trying to go. >> al: vexing question in my mind is the role of iran in the region. we had cooperation earlier from inan the now putting tremendous diplomatic and other pressure on them. do we need support from iran and afghanistan to succeed? what's the tradeoff? maybe another way of asking that question is what's the greater threat to national security if you can opine on that. what's going on in iran or in afghanistan or pakistan? >> i can't opine which is the greater threat because a nuclear iran would be a very great threat not only to us but to everyone. nor do i work on iran. but i do want to make very clear that while i don't have an iranian count part, the -- counterpart, the -- we recognize geography and its realities and anyone in this room who's been to herat, as ashley bommer and i have on a trip as -- and many of you know that herat is in a kind of cultural economic orbit with political influence from iran, iran has a legitimate role to play in the resolution of the afghan issue. but whether they will play it or not depends on a lot of other critical factors and that's re

country. greta: meaning? >> in iran. greta iran. iran is really your enemy. >> yes. i think they have a very negative effect in the political process. they do not want to see any success in iraq. greta: and how is in iran doing that to iraq now? >> we have a lot of iranian representatives. greta: so if you become prime minister, is there something you can do about to sort of get rid of the iran influence in iraq? >> this is one of our issues, and we want to have belonged to a positive relationship with all of our neighboring countries. we do not want anyone to have influence on the political process. we want to have exactly a good relationship, and positive relationship. we should respect each other. i do not want to interfere. they should do the same. greta: you supported or helped plan and support the surge. is that right? >> yes. greta: why? >> because i knew from this beginning that this conflict was created by a third party for his interest to see the sunni and americans fighting together. greta: who is that third party? >> i mean iran. >brit: in july, you were in london giving a

of iraq, in turkey, iran, and syria. but in iran itself, there is a deep fault line that has existed really since the collapse of the ultimate empire between the arab and kurdish people of iraq. and they have fought off and on for almost a century. they have also lived at peace at times, reaching accords that eventually fell apart. since 1991 -- well, there was an autonomy agreement that the kurds signed with the regime, the baath regime, in 1970, and that came apart after five years. but after 1991, the kurds were able to reinvigorate their autonomous region and occupy the area that you see on the map, the white area. since then, it they have started to develop away from the shadow of the regime, in a way, and to bring some economic growth to the area, but for many years, until 2003, the kurts were very much restricted by the fact that their only excess was through neighboring states, turkey and iran, and these states had no interest in allowing the kurds to develop too far, because these countries opposed the emergence of the kurdish independent states in roque or even, more broadl
